Prepare your Home for the Window Installation Crew

When you decide to get new windows in Anaheim, CA the toughest part is wading through all the options. Once that is done you can leave the rest of the heavy lifting up to the window crew. We do not subcontract the installation, and our expert crew will have your new windows installed in no time. That said, if you want your installation to go smoothly, and as quick as possible, there are some small things you can do to help the crew out. These small efforts will cut down on time and labor costs. Here is what you should do:

Step 1. Take it Down

The most obvious thing to do is to pull down your window coverings. Remove any drapes, rods, blinds, and hardwareespecially if you plan to reuse them with your new windows. Store them out of the way so the crew has easy access to the windows. You also want to pull down any pictures, mirrors, or wall hanging near the installation sites. You don’t want them getting bumped or knocked off the wall during the installation.

Step 2. Give them Room

In addition to window dressings and wall hangings, you also want to move any furniture out of the way. You want to give the installation crew room to maneuver. They need to get the old windows out and new windows in. Those units are large and cumbersome. You also want to do what you can to clear away obstructions on the outside of your home. Move any outdoor furniture and décor so they have room to work.

Step 3. Clear a Path

The installation crew will also trek in and out of your home, back and forth several times. To make their job easy you can clear a direct path for them, so they can maneuver their heavy windows without having to worry about winding around an indoor obstacle course. Eliminate tripping hazards like children’s toys, area rugs, and cords or cables. Also make sure your indoor pets are secure and out of the way.

Step 4. Cover it Up

Window removal takes some demolition, and this can get messy. The installation team will do all they can to cut down on the mess, but there is only so much they can do. If you want to take extra precautions you can cover your furniture and floor with sheets or drop covers. However, before you get too involved in this process, contact the window company and see what they plan to cover. Because of liability, there might be restrictions on what you can cover and what the company will plan to cover. Just to be sure, call and ask.

Step 5. Let them In

This sounds a bit obvious, but you would be surprised how often installers show up to a site and can’t get inside. If you cannot be on site during the installation, make sure you have a friend or neighbor there who can give the workers access to your home. You also want to contact your security company if you have one. Make sure you deactivate your alarm system during the installation and reactive it once your new windows Mission Viejo, CA are in place.

These simple tips will make all the difference and soon you will be enjoying your new windows. Have any questions about the installation process or quality windows in Anaheim, CA?
